DEWEY SQUARE - An op-ed in the Boston Herald claims to supports the goals of Occupy Boston but then trashes the movement for its unhygienic handling of food. At times the author seems to grasp at straws, citing “some sort of electrical hook-up to a battery inside the tent" as one of the offenses, though the Globe reports that the non-profit largely running the protest is also concerned about poor sanitation, saying the occupation has hurt sales of local farmers.

BROOKLINE - Today the chef/writer-chef/writer couple known as The Skinny Beet launched their new column "Food Beet" in the Brookline Hub. Contributor Richard Chudy runs Boston Burger Blog and writes the column "Man Food" for Boston Magazine's Chowder. Katie Barszcz runs the blog The Small Boston Kitchen. [Brookline Hub]
